My name is Lutullus Penton (Lu).
I am originally from Flint, Michigan. Upon graduating from Flint Southwestern High School. I attended American Baptist College in Nashville, Tennessee for two years. I joined SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference) a year before Dr. King was killed in Memphis, Tennessee. I was then compelled to join the Civil Rights movement full time as a Community Organizer. After traveling across the Nation doing Civil rights work for the next 5 years, I came back to Flint and attended the University of Michigan where I picked up a Bachelor’s degree in World History and a double minor in Urban Studies and African, African American History. I later acquired my Masters Degree in Liberal Studies (MLS) with a concentration in American Culture.
After Graduating with my BA, I taught in many of the Flint Public schools for the next 5 years. However, I spent most of my professional career as a Public Administrator. For the past 7 years I have been working at the GISD (Genesee Intermediate School District) as a Substitute Teacher, a Para-Pro and a School Bus Driver for special needs children.
I am a licensed ordained Minister and Associate Pastor. I was raised in the church and called to the ministry in 1962, a few months after my father’s untimely death. God comforted me and spoke to my heart. He affirmed that He is my Father, He is a Father to the Fatherless, and that He would never leave me or forsake me and that I would teach and preach His Gospel. Even though I strayed from Him for a time He never left me. He is faithful, a good, good Father. He has worked throughout the history of mankind His divine purpose, and I want the world to know it.
Some of my hobbies include Civil War reenactor, running, and working out. I am a musician, playwriter, and actor, I have also served and am serving in the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary.
I am confident that this school year is going to be an awesome year and that the Lord is going to do great things in our classes! Continually pray for our school throughout the year that we will have strength in and through faith, hope and love, and that everything we do is to God’s glory.
In praise to God,
Mr. Lutullus Penton Jr.
